Mary McKitrick, professional voice actor and avid blogger, recently composed a lengthy article about charging rates in the voice over industry.
Mary stated in her post “Most of my colleagues in the business of voice-over find setting rates to be the most difficult part of their job. I would like to examine this issue in some detail, and I must warn you this is a long post – the longest one I’ve ever written.”
Some of the reasons why it is so difficult to set voice-over rates, as further explained in the article, are:
- The going rate for voice-over varies geographically
- The perception that doing voice-overs is easy
- The cost of running a voice-over business
- The actual voice-over of voice-over
This information is critical to the success of any voice acting business and is most useful to those starting out in voice over or considering a career in voice acting.
